DR reacts to Danish politican

DR reacts to Danish politican

The social-democrat politician Lasse Quvang Rasmussen, who is the party’s fourth candidate for the European elections on 25 May has asked the DR and the EBU to disqualify Russia from this year’s Eurovision Song Contest, following it’s behavior on the Crimean peninsula. However, Pernille Gaardbo who is in charge of the contest this year, has shortly reacted: DR’s role  as the host of Eurovision is to produce three great  shows. The idea behind Eurovision Song Contest is to unite  Europe through music. All provisions relating to participation from each country are handled exclusively by the EBU, says Pernille Gaardbo to dr.dk Rasmussen suggests that by excluding Russia from the contest, it’s an alternative to the political and economic sanctions imposed by the West set against the country, as a result of the Crimean conflict with Ukraine. DR and EBU have made it clear, that despite the political situation, Russia will not be disqualified from the competition.
